The Dallas Mavericks are quietly putting things together during this winning streak and the offense is starting to heat up. The Charlotte Hornets are playing good basketball as well, but we're still to the point where we're waiting for them to cool off. The Hornets also haven't had the toughest schedule in the world during this four-game winning streak. The jury is still out on the Hornets for me. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Mavericks on the road.
